Nobody can spot gaps as well as well as Thomas Müller, which has led to his nickname of the Raumdeuter, or the Space Invader. It is something the Bayern Munich attacking midfielder has built his reputation on; one of those rare talents who may not be known to excel at one particular thing, but is outstandingly good at pretty much everything. His unorthodox, gamely approach would be laughed at, were he not the 2010 World Cup's top goalscorer with five goals, followed by another five four years later. Diego Maradona once mistook him for a ballboy – even he has since acknowledged that first impressions can be very much deceiving when it comes to Müller.

The youngest foreign goalscorer in the Bundesliga, the youngest to score two in a game and the youngest to score for the USA – in a friendly and competitive fixture – Christian Pulisic is racking up record after record. His performances, which have been improving consistently, are earning recognition too, with only Kylian Mbappe and Gianluigi Donnarumma name ahead of him as the best under-19 players in the world, according to the NxGn list. His goal and assist on the opening day of the current season confirmed that the Hershey, Pennsylvania, native is no longer just a hot prospect – he is the real thing.
There are simply not enough superlatives to describe a player who, no matter how much you know about his strengths, remains nigh on impossible to stop. There is no player who can dip his shoulder and sell a dummy with as much aplomb as the Dutch winger, who is not showing any sign of ageing either – nor are his cunning incursions from the right and arrowed shots into the far corner which have been one of the most feared weapons in European football for well over a decade – and Bayern are understandably glad it is part of their armoury.

Prior to arriving in Dortmund, Yarmolenko had 22 goals in 55 Ukraine appearances on his CV, so it was hardly a surprise that he was on the Westphalians' – and many other clubs' – radar. His strong physique and a blistering pace to boot make him one of the toughest players to mark; when Yarmolenko gets his head down and runs with the ball, hoping and praying may be the best thing defenders can do. Add a venomous shot to his repertoire, and it is clear why the winger has been creating quite some noise since arriving in the Bundesliga.
